This month, WETA TV 26 and WETA HD will broadcast three episodes of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW taped last summer at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The most popular series on public television today, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW features specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers traveling throughout the United States, offering free appraisals of items brought to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW events by the public. Veteran television personality Mark L. Walberg serves as series host.
Jeremy Piven returns as the flamboyant department store magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge, who brought American-style retailing to the U.K. Season 3 opens in 1919, with the war finally over and Harry and his family coping with wrenching change.
Enjoy this step through time charting WETA's history from its founding in the 1950s as an educational television station, the addition of a public radio station, and evolution into a major national producer for PBS.
